Is it me, or are a lot of the example trios actually competent or neither competent nor incompetent?

I think that examples such as "Diablo II"'s Diablo, Mephisto and Baal, which is more of a Big Bad Triumvirate, and actually manage to do quite a lot of evil things competently. Don't really fit this trope.

Should i clean them up as i see fit, or should i leave it as is? (asking since there's quite a few of the examples.

I noticed that too. Plenty of the examples are not exactly what the trope description text says, like Ragyo, Nui and Rei from Kill La Kill. Those characters are not incompetent, nor comic relief.

These ensemble tropes get lots of shoehorning. Such "examples" need to be removed.

This is specifically about villains, isn't it? I thought it was, and was planning to remove an example that referred to a set of heroes, but the article description is sort of odd about it. The wording only seems to imply that these characters are villains, making it sound like this is usually, but not always, the case.

Needs a better picture, like a lot better. Didn't we used to have one of the old trope namers?

Replace the picture with one of Team Rocket.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
